Dr Richard Haddad is an experienced urological surgeon. He undertook post fellowship sub-specialised training in robotic cancer surgery, McGill University Health Centre, Montreal Canada, in February 2012.
He was trained in general surgery in Sydney for six years prior to commencing urological training in Sydney thereafter.
He is dual fellowship trained. He is a traditionally open and laparoscopic surgeon. He also performs all other general urological procedures.
At the main consulting at Norwest Private Hospital, his practice manager Erika and full-time clinical nurse practice nurse Margaret, are available to guide patients through their surgical care process.
Dr Haddad’s high volume robotic exposure in the context of a prestigious robotic fellowship has afforded him a rare appreciation and understanding of the subtleties and ergonomics of the robotic surgical platform.
He is an expert at nerve sparing robotic radical prostatectomy and robotic partial nephrectomy and is a proctor through Device Technologies for the Da Vinci system.
Dr Haddad has performed and has been involved with over 500 robotic cases, including quite complex robotic surgery. He is a proctor for newly transitioning surgeons.
The prestigious McGill Uro-Oncology Fellowship is only offered to candidates with substantial open and laparoscopic experience, knowledge and skill. The intensive fellowship affords a high level of appreciation of the robotic surgical platform. Within his practice, this has translated into sound oncological results with very safe operative parameter outcomes.
Dr Haddad also has a high volume Holmium stone laser lithotripsy practice, as well as having substantial experience in transurethral resection of the prostate, for enlarged prostates.
He is a traditionally and formally trained open pelvic surgeon and his six years of general surgical experience prior to urologic training has afforded him a rare overall level of surgical experience.
The main consulting suite at Norwest Private Hospital suite is staffed by a group with a combined experience level that is very difficult to match.
The efficiency of his practice manager, Erika and his clinic nurse specialist Margaret, brings a certain level of patient satisfaction and comfort and both are available in rooms at all times to guide each and every patient and their families through the surgical and clinical process.
There is almost never a question or problem that they cannot tackle.
